Good morning family, how are you today? I haven’t been feeling my normal self lately but with the help of love from my family, rest, food, hydration and my crystal family….doing better. It’s amazing how much better I feel holding crystals as I sleep!
So speaking of sleep I had one of my flash dreams, a really quick dream but it affected me so much I had to get up and jot a note down so I wouldn’t forget it. Let me preface things by saying we’ve been watching the History Channel Show Vikings and I will say since we’ve started watching it, my dream life has been more active. We are almost to the end of Season 2.
So the dream was just seeing a huge vision of a woman looking like Lagertha and someone said something but I can’t remember what they said. She was the size of the woman from The Attack of the 50 Ft woman (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051380/?ref_=nv_sr_2) and I do remember hearing she was the Wind Goddess Azula.
From what I could find, there isn’t such a goddess but there is Azula from Avatar the Last Airbender. Both of these women are powerful but the latter goes literally mad with her powers. Like I said, ever since I’ve started watching Vikings, my dreams have become very active. Kyle and I think that it is because of themes and nature of the show. I believe that exposure to certain things can “light up” parts of our DNA….our code….activate it. Things that may have been latent or asleep can be awakened with the right stimuli. With this in mind, we are taking our time with the show!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lagertha was, according to legend, a Viking shieldmaiden from what is now Norway, and the onetime wife of the famous Viking Ragnar Lothbrok. Her tale, as recorded by the chronicler Saxo in the 12th century, may be a reflection of tales about Thorgerd (Þorgerðr Hölgabrúðr), a Norse deity.
Her name as recorded by Saxo, Lathgertha, is likely a Latinisation of the Old Norse Hlaðgerðr (Hladgerd). It is frequently rendered in English-language sources as “Lagertha”, and has also been recorded as Ladgertha, Ladgerda or similar.
Princess Azula (?????? Ā Zǔ Lā?) is a fictional character and antagonist of Nickelodeon’s animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the character is voiced by veteran voice actress Grey DeLisle.
In the show, Azula is the crown princess of the Fire Nation and a Firebending prodigy. Upon Fire Lord Ozai’s orders, she begins a quest with her childhood friends Mai and Ty Lee to retrieve her exiled brother Prince Zuko and their uncle Iroh, while also attempting to capture the Avatar, a transcendent being capable of manipulating all four elements (Earth, Water, Fire and Air). Azula is known to be cold, cruel, manipulative, and, as her brother Zuko says, ‘always lies’. Throughout the series, she is shown to be capable of a much higher level of bending and yields blue flames, instead of red and orange, as well as having the rare firebending ability to generate pure whitish-blue lightning
Kyle and I were talking this morning about how it doesn’t seem like Christmas is only a couple days away. I use to be much more in tune with the holidays than I am now. Now I care more about the weather and the seasons than I do about the “Hallmarks” we’ve attached to them. We are looking forward to seeing Kyle’s family and watching Love Actually or Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (Mystery Science Theater 3000 version) with his Mom on Christmas Eve. It’s those types of things that make the holidays for me – the memories we make together!
